Fishing Reports

Thursday, December 11, 2014


Hello from Big Winni. The ice is growing rapidly we are between 14 and 15 1/2 inches of ice and no snow. Fishing has been good. Perch are caught in bigger numbers but they have to be sorted. Shore drops have be working best, such as Moxeys, the stumpfield on the southeast corner, snaghole, or sugar on the west side. Walleye action has been good on the main lake, bars, and humps. Work 15 to 25 ft of water. Pike are on fire. If you are tip up fishing, fish the top section of all the break lines and 3 ft off the bottom. Pan-fish have been good early and late in the day. Big and little cut foot and third river, 7-9 ft of water. ATV travel on the entire lake. Light truck travel out of some resorts. Call ahead to where ever you are going before going out on the lake. 

Just a reminder the ice is very slippery because of very little snow, so be careful and use ice cleats if possible. Be safe and see ya on the lake!

Nine to 12 inches of ice is common throughout the lake. A few cracks have developed, but it’s nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year. Early reports indicate good perch action in the 9-foot sand areas and northern pike have been active in less than 12 feet in most areas of the lake.

Northern pike are being caught on minnows or crankbaits in 13 to 16 feet and perch continue to be found in 7 to 10 feet. Walleyes have bit best off the points and shoreline breaks in 8 to 10 feet, but overall fishing pressure has been light.
